Eindhoven/Arezzo, January 17, 2023 – Axelera AI B.V. (“Axelera AI”) has chosen SECO as the sole European developer of edge AI solutions based on its recently announced Metis™ AI Platform, a high-performance, cost effective and user-friendly platform combining hardware and software to accelerate computer vision at the edge.


SECO will gain early access to Axelera AI’s technology and will complete the design of a development board and a dedicated module on a standard form factor. Introducing the module into SECO’s product portfolio will provide high performance AI inference capability at low latency, enabling SECO to extend its offering to include the high-end computer vision market segment.

Enabling a strong ecosystem is crucial, offering our customers an easy way to buy, use, and integrate our disruptive technologies into their products. We are very proud of the collaboration with SECO, reinforcing our European DNA while adding critical skills and capabilities to serve a variety of customers in different vertical markets”, said Fabrizio Del Maffeo, CEO of Axelera AI.
